Romeo and Juliet at the Gornergrat

Two feuding Zermatt farming families.
Their children, madly in love with each other.
A headless doll appears as a bad omen.
The pastor who foresees everything and recounts a telling tale to the enamoured couple:
The story of Romeo and Juliet.
A drifter with a big dream...
Is a new fate now being whittled from
a bad omen?

The Matterhorn is all-knowing – and smiles kindly.

Europe's highest open-air theatre performances at over 2600 metres a.s.l. will be staged for the second time in the summer of 2017. Accompanied by magnificent views of the Matterhorn, an emotional and gripping Zermatt-based drama will again play out on the Riffelberg following on from the "The Matterhorn Story".
